I picked up the Wal-Mart exclusive Hardhead for $15 this Monday.
This was a printed shelf tag sale rather than a clearance sticker, so I assume this is not an isolated incident. The tag did call it "Onslaught," but I assume that's just they way it was entered into the system in the first place.

Yesterday I saw 2 Skyfalls and 1 Onslaught at the North Windham CT Wal-Mart that were $15.

I can confirm this for the Bay City Wal-Mart in Michigan, but they sold out of all of that wave.

They had Onslaughts and one Stormcloud for $11 dollars there too, but there aren't any Stormclouds there, my brother bought the last one.

I sure did! Oddly enough, just after buying I discovered that the batteries had died on my original. Good timing!

Rc: I did too. I couldn't resist the "and awaaay we go" gag and the price cut. So now I have normal Powerglide and Disco Powerglide.

Somehow, I don't think PG would see anything wrong with having two of himself around. Would perhaps be useful with his Astoria and Moonracer situation. icon-hotrod.gif

I picked up all three for $15 a pop this weekend. I'm happy to have Skyjack, but the other two just make me depressed with myself, like I'm living out the old "bad food, small portions" joke.

"You have any interest in these two toys?"

"No."

"They're $30 each. You sure you don't want them?"

"No."

"How bout $30 for both?"

"Okay!"

Bingo.

Picked up Skyfall and Hardhead, my Wal-Mart had a huge pile of broken-electronics Onslaught, and one Storm Cloud. Is it wrong that I'm still cranky he wasn't Tailwind?

And while I'll gladly buy another Silverbolt-mold, I can't bring myself to get another of the empirically superior Powerglide mold.

I'm weird.

Cheap here, too. Got a $15 Hardhead the other day, then went back a few days later to see him marked down to $11. Also picked up Masterpiece Skywarp for $40, so I'm glad I went back.

Guess I know where I am going as soon as the snow gets us out of work today. I do admit, I wanna get me some of that Red Powerglide action.

Also, local Walmart has restocked masterpiece Skywarps, a whole endcap of them for $30 finally.
Clearing out some old TFs and Mugenbine in my BST Thread. You know you want some of these.

Hmm, I'm gonna have to check this out. Another Powerglide, and a first Hardhead, might be on their way.

I'm just sad all the Hardheads were gone by the time they went on sale.

I picked Skyfall, Hardhead and Fearswoop all at half price. Just about every Walmart exclusive EXCEPT Masterpiece Skywarp is half price.

Anyone notice that Hardhead rings up as Onslaught on the computer?

Yeah I saw Fearswoop for $12 at one of the nearby Wal-Marts. Still didn't think he was worth the price.

I got Fearswoop for $11 a couple days after Christmas. He's not the best, but I do love the vehicle mode. And the fact that the battle damage on the Legends fighting a tiger-striped jet are in the form of cat scratches icon-hotrod.gif

Wow last time I went to my Walmart they had a boat load of nothing on the shelves.

Is this a bulk restock?

The Walmarts around here are flooded with their exclusives (and old ROTF Deluxes). I'm actually a little surprised this didn't come sooner.
